Yes, it’s February. I have a million reasons why I haven’t posted in 9 months, but I’m sure we all have a million reasons why we don’t keep up with everything in our lives all the time. I’ll try to post more this year.
Last spring, I decided to train for an Ironman 70.3. It took up a lot of my free time that is usually reserved for sewing. The race was in August in Lake Stevens, WA. I trained with a good friend. We took selfies biking 40 miles before work, swam in lakes, and raced until we almost dropped. Going into it, I thought I’d do one and be done, but now I am planning on doing another 70.3 in June. It’s addicting. (For those who don’t know, an Ironman 70.3 is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run…and it’s as crazy as it sounds.) I had some serious bike envy at the race with all of the NICE bikes there. But at the end of the day, it’s a hobby, just like my sewing. I don’t need a seven thousand dollar bike or sewing machine to get the job done, but boy, they sure look (and I’m sure function) nice!
I did end up doing some sewing throughout the year, I just didn’t find the time to post it. Here’s my year in review in pictures:
Numerous Peekaboo Alex & Anna Winter PJ’s:
And several Peekaboo Lullaby Baby gowns created for gifts:
And a ruffled diaper cover, appliquéd onesie, and crochet hat, also for a baby gift:
The ruffled diaper pattern is a Tie Dye Diva pattern from Craftsy, I believe. The crochet beanie is a modified pattern from Inner Hooker, which can be found on Etsy.
That about wraps up my sewing for 2015. I started making a tree skirt at Christmas time, but have yet to finish it. It will be lovely once it’s done, but it still needs to be quilted.
I believe that’s about it! Shoot me questions in the comments if you want!
